Indominus Rex

irex1 Indominus RexThe Indominus Rex, also known originally as Diabolus-Rex or D-Rex, is the nickname given to a genetically-created hybrid dinosaur that is the villain in the Jurassic World movie. It has a mixture of DNA from various dinosaurs including the Tyrannosaurus Rex and a Velociraptor and was a created as a new attraction for the park.

DNA & Abilities

Tyrannosaurus Rex

The T-Rex forms the basis of the Indominus Rex and it looks and moves quite similar to the T-Rex. You’ll easily be familiar with its huge powerful jaw and tail.

Abelisaurs

The Indominus Rex has various features from Abelisaurs which improves upon the Tyrannosaurus Rex and makes the I-Rex bigger and stronger. The dinosaur incorporated DNA from a Giganotosaurus to make it bigger; a Majungasaurus for more teeth; a Rugops for its bony osteoderms and a Carnotaurus which gives it the horns above the eye orbit.

Cuttlefish

Cuttlefish had an interesting ability where it can change the colour of its skin at will. This gives the Indominus Rex a massive advantage at camouflaging with its environment allowing to hide in plain sight.

 Indominus RexTree Frog

The tree frogs DNA allow the Indominus Rex to alter its body temperature. This allows the Indominus rex to avoid infrared detection used by the Park’s security.

Pit Adder

As we know the Tyrannosaurus Rex’s vision is based on movement. However, due to the Adder’s DNA, the Indominus Rex can see in infrared vision allowing it to spot heat signatures from its prey.

Velociraptor

The last confirmed creature is the Velociraptor which gives the Indominus Rex superior intelligence. In Jurassic World, the dinosaur can see weaknesses in its enclosure and actually set a trap kill its prey and escape. The Raptor DNA also allows it to communicate with the Velociraptors and it becomes the Alpha Raptor for a short time.

Unknown Abilities

  • It’s assumed another modern creature was used to give the Indominus Rex opposable thumbs giving it better hand movements such as the ability to grasp onto its prey.
  • It’s also speculated that the creature has some kind of electromagnetic ability to interfere with radio and mobile signals as many times throughout Jurassic World, the characters had trouble communicating via radios.

Jurassic World

InGen SEO Simon Masrani funded the creation of the Indominus Rex as a new park attraction, however the InGen board had more sinister intentions and were wanting to use the dinosaur as a military weapon. Dr. Wu didn’t divulge what DNA went into creating the Indominus Rex as the intention was to create a lethal killing weapon for the InGen. The idea was to deploy the dinosaur at night with infrared vision and was able to stay hidden from enemies (through its camouflaging and thermoregulation abilities).

Indominus Rex

In Jurassic World, it is said that the Indominus Rex killed its sibling at some point. Simon Masrani arrives at the attraction and tells Claire Dearing that he wants Owen to check its enclosure for vulnerabilities. When Owen and two other park employees explore its enclosure, it’s assumed the Indominus Rex has scaled the wall and escaped. Instead, the dinosaur set a trap and ambushed them. It kills the two employees and escapes its enclosure with Owen managing to hide. The security team attempt to capture the dinosaur but it tears them apart. Later, the two kids, Gray and Zach, are in the Gyrosphere and are attacked by the Indominus Rex. They narrowly manage to escape by jumping off a waterfall. Claire and Owen arrive at the old Visitor’s Center and are attacked by the dinosaur. Simon Masrani flies a helicopter and attacks the creature from the air as it runs into the aviary. Many pterosaurs escape and cause the helicopter to crash through the aviary.

The security team decide to use the Velociraptors against the Indominus Rex but unknown to them, it’s revealed that the creature has Raptor DNA. It is able to communicate with the Raptors and orders them to attack the security team. Owen later manages to reconnect with the Velociraptors and orders them to kill the Indominus Rex. The Raptors attack but are easily overpowered by the dinosaur and seemingly killed. Claire opens up the Tyrannosaurus paddock and leads it back to the Indominus Rex. The two dinosaurs engage in a ferocious battle with the Indominus Rex having the upper hand. As it is about to kill the Indominus Rex, the Velociraptor “Blue” reappears and attacks it. This enables the Tyrannosaurus to re-engage in battle. As they push the I-Rex to the lagoon, the Mosasaurus bursts out of the water and drags the Indominus Rex to the bottom of the lagoon, killing it once and for all.

Comments
          1. Late Crestations including that the trex was in the late cresatations with velociraptor

        1. might have evolved after the meteorite hit and picked of the survivors. This might be a cool idea egg cause it might have died, then Jurassic world found its remains and pretended they hadn’t found it , and then they surprised the world with the Indominus rex by making it taking the dna out of it and created the dinosaur!!!

        2. Everything in JW is over exaggerated, Spino, Raptor, Rex, so really it’s hard to tell what do I would in in a fight.

      1. Well it wouldn’t exactly kill everything. It just so happens that this one was raised improperly and so it went insane kind of. In the wild I am sure it would be an apex predator but this one didn’t know where it fit in the chain so it just went killing everything in a psychotic rage.

          1. I don’t know how smart you are clever girl, but I-rex is spelled Indominus Rex. Get your facts straight!

  1. Being the dinosaur enthusiast that I am, I can’t wait to see what this dinosaur looks like. Hopefully it will be more ferocious than the T-Rex, the velociraptor, and the spinosaurus.

    1. D rex?Heck, no. If there was a final battle between tyrannosaurus rex and diabolus rex, I would say t rex would win, even though the diabolus will probably poison it, it’s unknown that it will with longer arms and claws than t rex.

          1. Where the HEELL did you get that? And you can keep your comments to yourself, Dr. Doom.

          2. Lol indom has longer arms,and its arms are stronger it nearly killed the t-rex with them then the raptor jumped in the indom was about to snap the t-rexes neck.

        1. i wouldnt think so the spinosauros has 1 major weakness its sail, its sail is connected to its spine, i rex can easily knock him on his back braking his sail and thus the spinosauros would be paralyzed … i think he was too over-rated in jurassic park 3 the infant t rex would of easily took him out

  2. Why the hell did those stupid scientists make it?! Might as well make Godzilla Or a Spinosaurus-T Rex-Velociraptor-Pterodactyl Hybrid!!!

      1. Indominus rex is a the good dinosaur off all because he choose me like a power ranger Indominus rex is my favorite dinosaur

    1. It was created to be used in the military but the scientists that cared for her didn’t know that and so raised it improperly. Being isolated and treated like a monster drove it insane and so it wanted revenge.

  3. Who’s the real killer, t rex or d rex?
    It would be the dinosaur that almost every one of the dinosaurs fans loved to see in the fourth movie. Jurassic Park 3 scene with spinosaurus killing a t rex, it’s just complete bullsh*t, I’m okay with that scene, normal reaction, but in my opinion, it would be tyrannosaurus. I give credit to diabolus, the new killer, but I prefer tyrannosaurus rex.

  4. It’s a f**king bad idea to create something that would bring even more destruction and chaos, or in a better term, extinction upon themselves. Dumb, greedy bastards brought annihilation to themselves. Not the managers’ problem, but why the hell would they make a serious mistake and f**king do it. That’s bullshiting and screwing around. Good movie, though.

    1. Very true, but please stop making rude comments filled with swear words. There’s no need to get angry (I do sometimes, but it’s mainly just when I’m defending my opinions.

        1. That because spinosaurus is useless on battle, there teeth aren’t for hunting big prey like hadrosaur they use for to catch fish and hold the fish.

          1. Actually…
            Spinosaurus could kill T-Rex, Giganotosaurus, and Indominus rex, it DID eat hadrosaurs, BETTER BELIEVE.

          2. You’re wrong spinosaurus is tougher than the rest of the dinosaurs because he was the most dangerous dinosaur in the world,because I was watching in billschanel top 10 most dangerous dinosaurs and the spino was first.(If you want more information go to the spinosaurus chapter)

  5. i can.t wait to see that movie in june jurassic world with this new hybrid prehistoric dinosaur call indominus rex or d-rex for short with that dinosaur i will command it this one is a rookie but i love dinosaurs please make another two jurassic park sequels please yes there is more dinosaurs

  6. In jurassic world i hope the Moasasaurus destroys a subarine. And i hope a pack of Dilophosaurus ambush some park workers.

    1. No. Diabolus rex was the rumored named of the dinosaur before it was confirmed to be Indominus Rex.

  7. if the dinosaur was trained well it would never happen. the hybrid would make it a challenge for the tyrannosaurus rex.

  8. IT WOULD BE GOOD IF SPINOSAURS AND T REX CAN FIGHT THE I REX THEN THE T REX CAN KILL THE SPINOSAURS.

      1. Not that this doesn’t have anything to do with this , but how you said a Spinosaurus could kill a rex or giga is WRONG ON SO MANY LEVELS . IF YOU ACTUALLY UNDERSTAND SCIENCE LIKE SOMEONE DOESN’T , THESE DINOSAURS WOULD LIKELY TRY TO AVOID EACH OTHER . EVEN IF ONE WAS STARVING LIKE MANIAC , IT probably WOULD TRY NOT TO KILL THE OTHERS . my point said , lets say this scenario , EVEN AGAINST ALL LOGIC happened who would win , spino rex or giga ? Well due to its superior smarts , increase in size and strength , I bet a large rex could take them down . of course after that , it would die due to battle scars .#battlewounds

    1. Diablus Rex and Indominus Rex is the same dino! D Rex was its original name but they changed it to I Rex…

      What is cooler…

    1. they wanted to name it D rex but changed it to Indominus rex so naah they won’t it basically the same dinosaur

      1. exuse me! the head and neck is 73 feet long in the scene where it jumps up and grabs the shark.you can find this information trey the exlainers channel.

  9. Can someone please spell the scientific name Claire called the Indominus Rex in the movie. You know the name she said 4 year olds couldn’t say.
    Please and thank you

    1. yay i found it!
      Claire: [Walking up stairs to… paddok] The Indominus Rex makes us relevant again
      Owen: [laughing] Indominus Rex…
      Claire: We needed something scary and easy to pronounce. You should hear a four year old try to say ‘Archaeornithomimus’.
      Owen: You should hear you try to say it…

  10. Ok so everyone who watched the movie knows that there were 2 Indominus Rex and one die. Well what if somehow, the 2 Indominus Rex bred, made an egg, and because they were smart hid it. Then the 2 Indominus Rex fought because they thought the other would try to kill the offspring and one killed the other. Then in Jurassic World II, the Indominus Rex grows up and is even better than it’s parents so it kills the T-Rex that killed its parents and everything else in the island. Oh and all the embryos in the lab somehow hatch and team up with all the humans and kill the Indominus Rex.

    SOME IDEAS FOR THE DINOSAUR EMBRYOS THAT HATCH: Spinosaurus, Giganotasaurus, a pack of Raptors, and of course a T-Rex.

          1. No ones the king!spino and rex lived in two different enviroments and if they would have a fight……..they would probaly try to scare each other instead ofkill each other…………………………………………………….DONT JUDGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        1. you calling me stupid when you don’t know how to spell untamable right ? HA ! whos the idiot now smart-alic

  11. indominus rex is great in all but why did the mosasaur have to kill it? just saying because t rex fans wanted to see her to kill the indominus not the mosasaurus. but the mosasaur didnt get too much screen time so i guess the director thought that it had to be in the movie a little longer. but its still a good ending i guess.

    1. That because mosasaurus have jaw 3 or 4 times stronger than t rex jaws and the t rex jaws can’t go inside thick hide of indominus rex and mosasaurus have very long tooth about 2 or 3 times the size of t rex tooth so that can go inside indominus rex hide and killing it.

  12. In the 2nd JW they should make another hybrid to fight indominosaurus number two。They should call it “The Defender”。It is a combo of Triceratops for horns and frill,an Ankylosaur for armor and tail club,and a Brachiosaur for size。The plot is that in the first JW,there were two Indominus rexes。They mated,and the female killed the male,as T-rexes often do after mating。The female broke out to find food and a safer nest for her offspring,and got killed。In the second movie,the egg hatches and goes on rampage looking for a mate。The 2nd Indominosaurus is stronger then its parents,because hybrids easily mutate,and as its parents were siblings,that made mutation even more likely。The security guards go after it and get ripped apart。The goverment wants to nuke the island to stop the idominusaur from being captured by other countries and used as a superweapon against them,even though many tourists and tons of tech are stranded on the island。INGen want to save the tech,and are forced to create “The Defender” to battle the indominus rex。

  13. I wonder what inspired the makers of Jurassic World to have a made-up hybrid dinosaur as the top predator(for a short time)?

  14. Here is my idea for Jurassic Park V: Another Indominus rex is created by the villan and it wreaks havoc, they create another hybrid to defend themselves. It is called the Giganotospinoraptor rex! It has the body, arms, and legs of a tyrannosaur, the head of a carcharodontosaur, the sail of a spinosaur,…and the killer claw of a Velociraptor. However, even though it kills the Indominus rex, it takes control of the park and begins eating everyone, but they send in a Spinosaurus, and it kills the Giganotospinoraptor rex!

  15. Look Spinosaurus fans, your talk about spino winning against anything on land is folly. He swam and mostly hunted fish. The bite of a T. Rex is much stronger than a spino. Sorry to crush your dream.

    1. That’s what YOU think, buster! Your stupid I-Rex (and T-Rex and V-Rex) don’t stand a chance against Spinosaurus. You are probably one of those people who are too biased to accept the truth! By the way, Spinosaurus is 60 ft while I-Rex is only 50 ft, while your dumbfucking T-Rex is only 40 ft! I look up Spinosaurus information all the time, and it proves you wrong!

      1. v rex is bigger than spinosaurus. it weighs 10 tons and has a more powerful bite than t rex.BUSTER!

        1. 10 tons? That’s less than Spinosaurus Mr. Stupid, and Spinosaurus actually could have been 78 ft. BUSTER!

          1. First of all im not stupid.Second of all v rex is the future version of the rex,the rex already has a powerful bite,so v rex probaly has an even stronger bite.Also,what dinosaur was nick named `ghost of the forest`?

  16. Especially against the I Rex. He may be smaller than spino but is more agile, can run faster, camo, tougher skin, intelligence. New reports are coming out that when on land Spino was on all fours, def. not an apex predator but a predator no less

    1. There is no evidence of Spinosaurus being a quadrupled, and you are totally wrong bro. Sorry to crush your dreams, but that’s how it is!

      1. but how would it chase its prey? its legs are too stubby and could only walk,and its arms were huge

        1. Well, Spinosaurus could actually run fast, (not to fast though) and its arms would slap its prey and injure it. (Maybe even kill it!)

        2. They didn’t have the full sleketon and didn’t they use frog dna to fill the gaps in the scan that’s what fcked the spinosaurus’s modle.Also they say there might be a sub-species of spinosaurus.Or there just from different time periods.Which means the one they just found may have been one of the more recent ones.

  17. List:

    Spinosaurus: 60-78 ft,

    Giganotosaurus: 33-46 ft,

    T-Rex: 33-40 ft.

    Spinosaurus RULES! T-Rex fans are bums. I cannot understand why you people love that stupid, dumbfucking, no-good, T-Rex or Trex, as you call it! Spinosaurus would win because its bigger, BETTER, and faster than T-Rex is!

    1. You forgot to say that its smarter.But SPINO IS THE BEST IN THE WORLD you are exactly like me because we dont like T-REX WWOOOOOOHHHHOOOOOOOOO

    2. no . just no . spino is not 78 feet ! rex is 43 feet ! just because yo spinos bigger than rex does not make it better

  18. I said there’s evidence..spino is mostly aquatic. The tyrannosaurus has a larger and stronger bite force. The Spinosaurus may be bigger but not as lethal. There’s no point in arguing over which would win cuz we’ll never really know. But by bite force t-rex would win in my opinion. I’m not saying I love the t-rex more. Just saying, dang chill spino dude..

    1. That reconstruction is now thought to be inaccurate and that Spinosaurus had this stance as juvenile and lost it at adulthood. T-Rex may have had a stronger bite, but Spinosaurus’ advantage was it’s arms. They would slash the tyrannosaur’s head off, and then while it could continue scratching, T-Rex could just flail around its baby arms and die. It is true that we will probably never know which would win, but I think Spinosaurus would win because it’s bigger, better, taller, heavier, and faster than T-Rex was. BETTER BELIEVE.

      1. i like spinosaurus but i like t rex more.t rex is not my favorite dino my favorite dino is actually sinornithosaurus

      2. T.rex and Spino may have lived in the same time period but t.rex was in north america and spino was in north africa a fight between the two is probably very unlikey and if the planet was just breaking apart then it is really unlikely that that happened

      3. IM SO HAPPY THAT FINALLY THERE IS SOME ONE HWO UNDERSTANDS THAT SPINOSAURUS IS BETTER THAN THAT STUPID TREX FFFFIIIINNNALLLYYYYYYYY

      4. GO CHECK YOUR SCIENCE IDIOT . REX CLOCKS UP TO 45 MILES PER HOUR . REX IS AS TALL AS A GIRAFFE . spino is heavier BUT NOT STRONGER OR SMARTER . REX WAS BUILT BY NATURE TO KILL ANKYLOSAURUS AND TRICERATOPS , 2 ANIMALS SPINO WOULDNT STAND A CHANCE TOO . WILL YOU ALL SHUT UP AND ACTUALLY CONSULT A SCIENTIST BEFORE YO DO THIS.

  19. You have a point with slashing but I wouldn’t say it could take it’s head off with it’s slashing. But all it would take is one bite to the head and the Spinosaurus would be done.

    1. Yeah, but why does everyone hate spino? Just because of that one little scene everyone freaks out! By the way, just ONE bite wouldn’t kill Spinosaurus, but maybe three bites could. And yes, it probably wouldn’t take of T-Rex’s head. Sorry about the better believe.

    1. LYNG LYNG LYYYYNG JW WAS ALWAYS RONG at least spinosaurus rex understands that trex is not stronger than spinosaurus

        1. I LIKE SPINO TOO FINALLY SOMEBODY THAT UNDERSTANDS ME THAT SPINO IS STRONGER THAN TREX.Im going to tell you the top 5 dinosaurs what is going to be in Jurassic world 2 you know how I loked at it in facebok first ankylosaurus,SPINOSAURUS,mosasaurus,velociraptor and trex. II forgot that as well look in youtoube top 5 dinosaurs that will return in Jurassic world 2

          1. spinosaurus rex I want to be your friend like spino boy please I’m a spino fan too .PPPPLLLLEEEEEAAAASSSEEE

  20. Okay, so I went to Main Menu on my iPad, and nothing came up. However, I did find the page about it on National Geographic.

  21. OK did you know the spotlight is on the spinosaurus in the movie they figure out that the I rex isn’t dead and use the spinosaurus to finish it off

  22. It sure is a thrilling and scary and also action and amazing movie!I am curios for 2nd part of Jurassic World :]

    1. より:After studying this poisntg, I pondered the exact same level that I invariably marvel about when scanning new blogs and forums. Just what do I take into consideration this? Exactly how ought to it impact me? This and additional posts in your weblog right right here actually give some stuff to look at. I basically ended up here via Yahoo after I was very first doing a little internet research for some course perform that I have. At all times very good occasions looking by the use of and I’m hopeful that you’ll keep on writing new posts. Cheers!

    2. I’m a spino fan too .I-rex sucks and stop thinking about that idiot indominus rex if it was a battle of spinosaurus he would win and If there is a battle of spinosaurus and velociraptor he would finish I-rex in over seconds faster than a trex

  23. But the only reason that the Indominus was killed was because blue was able to distract it from killing the Rex from p9 and with their combined strength they managed to push it towards the water where the mosasaurs was able to grab it by the neck and have the Indominus become her dinner

  24. i think the t.rex is better but this whole spino vs. t.rex crap is stupid if u really want to prove who would win build a time machine and force the dinos to fight and you find out great come back and tell us, if your eaten well that’s a you problem and we will be here talking about irex

  25. I absolutely love Jurassic World. 🙂 The dinosaurs are awesome; Blue being my favorite and the Indominus suceeding in frightening me multiple times. It was sad though, to know it had gone mentally unstable because Ingen kept secrets, and it was improperly cared for.

    I wanted to ask though. Does anyone know how old the Indominus was in the movie, or how expensive it was to create her? I am currently working on a fanfiction and want to get all my facts straight.

    🙂 The spinosaurus in JP 3 was pretty cool, but a battle with an Indominus I think would be difficult to determine……
    The Spinosaurus was larger than the Indominus in the movie, and they both have long forearms with massive claws. But, the Indominus Rex has a jaw made for biting and crushing thanks to the T-Rex DNA it posesses.

    The Spinosaurus won in JP 3 because it got a hold of the Rex with its forearms, which was partially the same reason why the Indominus Rex had an advantage to Rexy in Jurassic World.

    🙂 I guess I can decide the victor when I write the scene in my fanfic of two Indominus Rexes battling a Spino. Lol

  26. I thought that this movie was FANTASTIC. Though now I kind of want to make the park now. I mean now that I know what the indominus Rex can do and watching the movies and seeing the parts that went wrong. People could actually, if they had the right equipment and technology. Recreate an actual living safe theme park. And I have got to say Indominus Rex is freaking amazing besides Blue. Blue is pretty cool

  27. Name meanigng Feirce or untamable King
    It’s roar is up to 140-160db, the same as a 747 taking off and can reach speeds up to 30 mph because of the Velociraptor and Tyrannosaurus DNA.

    If any of you have ever seen Jurassic world or want to know where I got that from go to JurassicWorld.com and go to the dinosaur section of the page.

    Tyrannosaurus Rex wins and please no spoilers on what’s suppose to happen in Jurassic world ll

  28. The spino with new found evidence was four legged. It was still the largest sauropod, but T-Rex had movement and stronger bite force. The T-Rex killed in JP3 was said to be an adolescent. The Indominus would have won if not for the raptor. The Indominus is bigger, faster and stronger in all things except bite force It has the intelligence to kill for sport, a thing only humans are capable of. Logically the only reason the T-Rex won, is because another T-Rex death, expecially Rexy, would have been terrible for the franchise.They had to have the moss a ur pull it into the water.

  29. I-rex is half human as well because it kills for sport because no animal or dinosaur kills for sport they only kill for food

  30. Duds the I Rex would win because it would break is back which would pazlreis it which will make it dead meat .

  31. They need to make another movie. A sequel to the jurassic world. There were like three jurassic park movies, so they need to make three jurassic world movies.

    End of discussion.

  32. Idominus Rex is like the girl I have ever seen! The idominus just likes to kill for sport.I like how she camouflage.😍😘😙😗😙😙😙😗😋😚😘😙😍

  33. They forgot that indom. Rex had human DNA in it because it was killing for sport and we are the only creatures known to do that

  34. If you look on the official Jurassic world wiki, its absolutely BS. It talks about how the indominus sustained fire from a mounted machine gun, on the chopper. Funny thing is that the Indominus Rex was never hit by the gun, because rather than shooting in front of the indominus, they shoot behind it.

  35. This is for all the people here. I’m not SpinoFan I’m another spino fan .(I’m saying this that you don’t confuse you’re self with SpinoFan OK?):-)

  36. Guys lISTEN TO ME SPINO IS STRONGER THAN REX BECAUSE IN NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC THE SPINO KICKED THE ASSSS OUT OF CHARCHARADONTOSAURUS AND THE CHARCARADONTOSAURUS IS MUCH BIGGER THAN THE TREX, NOOBS.-I said noobs to the people hwo think trex is stronger than the spino-
